Testimonials

What Families are Saying

“After the Plant Walk and Knots and Tarps workshops, two areas that I had minimal experience, I left feeling knowledgeable, capable, and excited to practice and continue learning.” – Mikaela, Workshop Participant

“It was refreshing how the class favoured a functional approach, instead of getting too caught up in the dogma of technical details. I’m confident that I could now put up a tarp when required to do so. The true value of SENS workshops is meeting like-minded adults. There is an opportunity to bond and build diverse community connections. I don’t know how I would even begin to put a price on that.” – Kam, Workshop Participant

SENS offers, I believe, remarkable opportunities for learning, connection, fun and adventure. Our family members have very much enjoyed taking part in youth programming, adult workshops and teen internship over the years. The brilliant SENS instructors are highly skilled in teaching and facilitating, and meet everyone where they’re at.” – Kerry, Program Parent
